“It is a problem with his knee ligaments, that he has been carrying for a while now, so we have decided to resolve it ones and for all,” Laurey said.

“Lebo will not be operational between four to five months or let’s say till January.”

The Strasbourg boss is not however in a rush for a replacement for the former Lille forward.
